air strikes. we have team fox coverage. jonathan hunt is with us at the united nations. let's first go to ed henry live at the white house. egypt is play ago key role in these talks. how is that going with the new president there? >> so far, so good. but there are a lot of wary eyes here at the white house and around the world because president morsi is new. he's from the muslim brotherhood. a lot of question marks about whether he can really be trusted. you'll remember back in the day, former egyptian president, hosni mubarak, far from perfect, but seen as an honest broker in these talks, and somebody who is a pillar in trying to bring all sides together. what's interesting is that today president morsi was saying the right things about how he was trying to bring together the parties for a cease fire. but that came two days after republicans on capitol hill threatened to take away u.s. aid unless he played a more constructive role. take a listen. >> egypt, watch what you do and how you do it. you're teetering with the congress on having your aid cut off if you keep inciting violence b

to the united nations, and taking appropriate military action. the reason there are so many more casualties on the part of the palestinians, they deliberately don't build shelters for their civilians. they build shelters only for their terrorist fighters. the terrorist fighters fire rockets from above ground, then run into the shelters, leaving the civilians to be exposed. israel, on the other hand, build shelters all over the country and enormous, enormous cost and they also fire their rockets from gaza city. now, they don't have to fire them from a crowded gaza city. they can fire them from an enormous amount of empty land that exists between gaza city -- but they choose -- >> let me bring in reza. there is a point, isn't there, about this, that israel is almost compelled to fire into these densely populated areas because that is where hamas hides its missile firing weaponry. what else are they supposed to do? how else do they tackle hamas and its firing of missiles? >> well, if you want a long-term solution to it, you have to deal with it at the political level. first of all, let's be cl

the ambassador. >> ambassador rice has done an excellent job at the united nations and is highly qualified for any number of positions in the foreign policy arena. i will leave it at that. >> reporter: bill, you may recall very quickly here that during his first white house news conference after his re-election, president obama took exception to republican senators critical of rice saying, quote if they want to come after anyone, they should come after him, after me. bill: he said it with force. kelly, thank you. waiting on the meeting in washington. martha: ambassador rice, reportedly as we were saying one of the top candidates to replace secretary of state hillary clinton and the president seemed to lay down the gauntlet to senators mccain and graham if the first news confriends after the election. kelly referred to this moment. let's look at it from november the 14th. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. martha: that is really the feistiest moment of that news conference. the president, who you see here, with ambassador s

the three benchmarks articulated by the united nations, that is recognizing my country's right to exist, abandoning terrorism and violence, supporting peace, then the door is open to negotiations. but the bad news is i see no evidence of that so far. on the contrary, i think in many ways hamas is stuck in a very extreme position and the evidence for that we saw today. we had the bombing in tel aviv on the bus. and hamas praised that. they welcomed that. they said that was legitimate. and so as long as hamas is doing that sort of thing it is difficult to be optimistic. but if they do change, if they do moderate. if they fundamentally reserve some of their very hard line positions, the door can be opened. >> i mean, do you accept, though, obviously in the last eight or nine days, 30 times as many palestinians have been killed as israelis? so clearly, there is bloodshed on both sides. and israel is not blameless here, either. >> i think the most important issue, though, is what were we doing? i mean, this whole operation was not to take territory or change regimes or something grandiose li
